Junior Hockey Action At Arena Tonight Kings And Cougars Gunning For Share Of Lead Calgary Mount Royal Cougars and Lethbridge Sugar Kings have one important thing in common. Both clubs will be gunning for a share of first place when they collide tonight at the Are- na at in the Alberta Jun- ior Hockey League. Over the weekend the Sugar Kings garnered three out of a possible four points while the Cougars split a pair of games, leaviJig the two teams tied for second place with 10 points. That's two back of the front- running Red Deer Rustlers who tied the Kings Saturday and topped the Cougars Sunday. Tonight's meeting is the sec- ond of the season between the two clubs in league play. Cou- gars grabbed the initial verdict by a one goal margin in Cal- gary, but the Kings have other ideas tonight in their quest for !a share of top spot. Kings have so far played sev- en games, sporting four wins, two ties and the lone kiss to Boston Star Esposito Off To Sizzling Start MONTREAL (CP) -Centre Phil Esposito of Boston Bruins, who two seasons ago set the existing record for points in a National Hockey League season with 126, today is the league's individual scoring leader follow- ing a nine-point splurge in two of his club's games last week. He now has a total of 10 five goals and five as- sists, as the Bruins remain un- defeated after four games. Esposito's career total stands at 493 points, including 206 goals and 287 assists in 463 regular- season games. This is an aver- age of 1.065 points a game, and makes him a likely candidate as the next NHL player to reach the 500-point plateau. Of the four players who have scored more than only four have an average of .more than one point per game Mikita of Chicago Black Hawks, 1.108; Bobby Hull, Chi- cago, 1.095; Jean Beliveau, Montreal Canadians, 1.083; and Gordie Howe, Detroit Red Wings, 1.082. LEADS BY TWO Esposito, who last season fin- ished second in the scoring race with 99 points, including a league-leading 43 goals, 21 fewer than scoring champion and .team-mate Bobby Ort, holds a two-point lead over four players in the early going this Boston's right wingers Ken Hodge and John McKenzie, Beli- veau and Chicago's Pit Martin are the foursome. Martin and Beliveau share the lead in as- sists with seven each.
